    As a 56 year-old burnt out accountant, drone photography sounds like a job I could do for a while. Get in while the getting is good and barriers to entry are fewer. Sure, most likely the bread and butter would be boring - weddings, real estate listings come to mind. But you're outdoors and the possibilities are limitless - outdoor adventures, any sort of competitive contests, wildlife, the possibilities are limitless. Maybe provide traffic updates for news channels if you want to think bigger.

    I think I have decent photographic skills, but when it comes time to production and putting it all together I would hopefully be able to bring in others to do that stuff. But I'd knock on the doors and do the marketing to get the business. I bet there's a lot of untapped $$$ in the industry.

    I always thought I could teach for a few years in the twilight of my career, but from what I understand that industry can be quite political and you have to smooch the right sphincters.

    Nothing like the buzz of a drone at a CX race to ruin the atmosphere of mud, cheers and beers...

    Learn how to repair electronics

    I have a DJI Mavic Pro (the original), and I have replaced the gimbal, numerous gimbal cables, many many blades (those are easy). Trees are not your friend.... Sensors are front facing, and downward, but not up or rear, so when you set auto track on a target, it may reverse or fly up into things....

    I won one in a raffle a couple months ago but still haven't set it up... I think it could be some fun but not really sure it will keep my interest more than 5 minutes. Need to look into registering / permits / etc.

    I hope Kage has a SAM missile system in his doghouse.
    Monkhouse: I want to go like my Dad did – peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    System: Fake news?? Trump's a Fake President, for God's sake.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    Homer: I believe that children are our future. Unless we stop them now.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind
